At this year’s Day of Reflection which focused on sustainability, we challenged you to reduce your carbon footprint in your commute to the Niagara-on-the-Lake Campus.
This event inspired Marc Nantel, associate vice-president, Research and Innovation to reduce his carbon footprint by biking, at least once this summer, 90 km from Oakville to Niagara-on-the-Lake. On August 9, Marc completed his challenge (read article here).
What will YOU do to reduce your carbon footprint?
Niagara Day is Wednesday, August 29 and will take place at the Welland Campus. We invite you to start planning your low-emission commute by biking, walking, taking public transit, carpooling, etc.
We will once again be calculating the carbon footprint of our commute to Niagara Day and we hope to announce an improvement compared to that of Day of Reflection.
